French Vintage Friday – vintage world globes

Happy Friday! Today is May 8th, one of my favorite days of the year! My husband and I went on our very first date on May 8, 2002. He picked me up around 8 and we went to see Spider Man. It wasn’t too long after that, that I knew he was the one that I was going to marry. Fast forward, exactly four years later, May 8th 2006, at 8:06pm my oldest son was born. He was three and a half weeks early, and perfect as can be, a healthy 7lbs 4 ounces. It seems like just yesterday my husband and I were going on our first date, and now we have a 14 year old! Time sure does fly!

Today, for French Vintage Friday, I’m sharing something that I started to collect when my oldest moved into his very own room, vintage world globes. He has since grown out of having a room that is decorated by me, so I have moved the globes into my third son’s room. He is seven and loves all things science/educational.

He often says “mom, will you tell me a country that I don’t know, and I’ll find it.” And, he always finds it! He’s so smart!

So until he outgrows a room that is decorated by me, the globes will stay. I wish they never had to grow up!

I hope your day is full of sunshine and happiness!!

So much love to you all!!!

  2. That is awesome! I didn’t know that about your son being born on the anniversary of your first date. Well happy date anniversary and happy birthday big boy! Meanwhile, let’s talk about these amazing globes. Maybe one of your boys will never grow out of them. Oh well, if they do you can always put them in an office space or something. Or send them to me if you can’t find a home for them anywhere. Just saying……
